OPI - Blue Shatters: Swatches and Review

If you aren't digging the crackle trend I am so sorry because OPI has released three new blue Shatters for us. I think they are all gorgeous. I actually gasped when I opened the box and saw them in person!
Turquoise Shatter - This one was the one that made me gasp the loudest. This is a glowing, lit up shimmer shatter in a cool, turquoise color. It is a bit translucent so I showed it over white to show the true shade and over Petites - Daze which let the green and the intense shimmer show through.

Blue Shatter - This is a cobalt shimmer shatter. Shown over white and Sinful Colors - Cream Pink. This one looks a bit faded on the nail. I think I thicker coat would have been better.

Navy Shatter - This is like a navy jelly that is obviously blue and not black. I have it here over white and a mint: Nicole by OPI - My Lifesaver.

I love all of these shades but I would since I like the crackle trend. I can see how if you don't like it, you aren't going to be a fan of these polishes. As far as crackles go, they are fantastic. OPI really has the formula down. They do look best, and wear best, with a top coat.

These are out now. What do you think?!


  1. The first combo is interesting

  2. The mani with Daze over looks SO GORGEOUS!

  3. I picked up Turquoise and Blue the other day (although I haven't actually used them yet). I figured Navy would be close enough to black so I didn't get it. I was wrong!! It looks so great on you...I NEED it! Then again, all three look good on you!! Love them!

  4. The turquoise shatter is gorgeous!

  5. Hi Elaine! I'm Elaine and I'm a lacquerhead too!!! :D The navy shatter looks gorgeous, I love how it doesn't look cracked but kinda like someone drew on it with a marker. Haha. Everything looks wonderful! I wish I can have this crackle collection!!!

  6. How pretty! Thanks for doing each one over two colors.. it really shows off how different they can be depending on the undies. The turquoise is definitely my favorite; it's breathtaking!
